The Silhouettes Cover Design for THE BOY NEXT DOOR

Our Creative Director Rich D. has created four amazing cover directions for THE BOY NEXT DOOR and we are counting on you to help us decide which one actually goes on the book! We know it’s a big decision, so we’ve sat down with Rich to find out what inspired this cover direction:

Boy Next Door Cover - silhouettes

Here, I decided to go straight for all out romance. This is the most extremely romantic of the cover designs, and if it’s chosen, we might even add a little more romance by forming the backlit white speckles into a loose heart shape. Nothing too overt, but just an extra hint of a heart…

I also really like having this sort of silhouette approach, which is a little different from the typical hot girl/hot guy that you get on most covers featuring couples.

(Also, I would like to thank April W. for her help on this cover.)

If you love what Rich is doing here, let us know by leaving a comment and voting for this cover direction. And remember, this is a cover direction, not the final cover, so if you have suggestions for making it even more Swoonworthy, share it in the comments!
